Coach Michibata Says:
Yohei earned a spot on the team as a walk-on this fall through his great attitude and good work ethic. His hard work paid off this fall when he reached the semi finals of the Columbia Invitational. He is looking to build on those results and earn a spot in the starting lineup.
Born Apr. 30, 1989 ... son of Ryuichi and Keiko Shoji ... has younger sisters Yuko and Naoko ... spent one year at Chatham High in New Jersey, where he also played soccer, before finishing in Japan.
